Product Description

Details

This Late Roman Ceremonial Sword is very different from the classic gladius used by Roman legionaries, but it is actually based on a historical prototype. On the corner of the cathedral at Porta della Carta in Venice, there is a statue portraying the Tetrarchs: late Roman Emperor Diocletian and his three co-regents Galerius, Constantius and Maximian. The four rulers look alike and each one is carrying a short sword with a symbolic eagle head in his left hand.

Our Late Roman Ceremonial Sword has an eagle head pommel and rectangular hand guard of solid brass and is based on this sculpture. This sword with a wooden grip painted warm brown was probably reserved for the ruling class. It also features a single-edged blade. Our Late Roman Ceremonial Sword comes with a leather scabbard decorated with elaborate brass fittings.
